Newbie Knight Guide   

Somewhat a mix between a Warrior and Cleric, a Knight embodies
the nature of both classes. A capable fighter, and a decent
healer, with strong physical attacks, and a fair amount of
protective spells in their arsenal, Knights are not to be looked down
upon.  Knights often have the advantage of being mounted and jousting
enemies from another room for alpha striking and dealing considerable
damage. Despite STR being the primary attribute for a Knight, they do
also cast spells, so looking at the race charts and showing the modifiers,
whilst some might still go Half Giant for the strength factor, a Half Orc
might not be a bad race to pick either as it does add a STR bonus but does
not take away from INT and WIS, which factors into spellcasting. Other
choices could also include Half Elf and Human, but preference depends
on the player and how they like to play,power oriented should go for
strength, and more spellcasting should lean towards the more magical
races, or perhaps something in between for a more balanced character.
